A Strengthened Spirit in the Secret Place

Strength in the Secret Place (Q & A Meeting)

Even though the week wasn’t over, it had been a hard one. Two days before teaching about discernment, the Lord was kind enough to bring a correction that will help many avoid the traps of the enemy when receiving discernment from the Holy Spirit. I had been under attack from the enemy for a while and couldn’t find the cause.  At one point I literally felt blows to my spirit man. When the situation was resolved, I felt lighter, surrounded by a peace that I didn’t know was diminished until the fullness of it returned. When I look back now, I can see the warning and information given by the Lord,  all applied to this correction… as they say, “Hindsight is twenty-twenty.”

That afternoon, I followed the gentle nudges of the Holy Spirit: I set aside the pile of work waiting for me and put on some worship music while I was working on crocheting the afghan for my husband. The night before I had discovered some more yarn for the project - if I took out a few rows, this yarn would really make a much better looking finished project. 

A thought occurred to me as I wound the yarn into a ball as I took out more than 300 stitches. This is much like what I was talking about at the Tea & Coffee meeting on Tuesday: Because I had written a book without the new revelation, I had to redo it. This is a lot of work, but well worth it to have a better final project. 

Worship music filled the air as I began to use the extra yarn. When the song the Lord told me was “our song” came on, I felt the gentle caress of the Holy Spirit. My eyes closed in a long blink and I saw the Lord in the Secret Place. 

Putting the crochet hook down, I focused my attention on my Beloved who beckoned me to Him. He spun and twirled me and told me how happy He was to see me, “I have a gift for you…” He said.

He placed both His hands over my head. A flood of energy cascaded into my body. The rushing waves filled my mouth, then my spirit between my breast bones. He kept His hands there and it felt like air bubbles were gently caressing the space behind and around my eyes. I prayed for  someone I know  who needs healing in this area; if I was feeling this in my physical body, perhaps the Lord would heal her. 

My spiritual body felt fully energized, bubbling up with the power of God. “Thank you for the recharge, my Love,” I said, preparing to leave. 

“I’m not finished, yet,” He laughed as He spun me around and sat me in a chair. Again He placed His hands over my head, but I didn’t feel anything and I said as much. “Be patient,” He instructed me.

A fine, shimmering gossamer cocoon began forming around the top of my head, spreading toward my feet. The thought of being enclosed in something freaked me out a bit and I quickly tested the vision by asking, “Do you confess that Jesus, the son of God, has come in the flesh to the Earth.” 

He chuckled, “Yes I do confess this because I did and I shall again.” 

I tried to follow His instructions and relax as this process continued. When the cocoon was fully formed I freaked out again and began to struggle, “Jesus, Yahweh!” 

My perspective of the vision backed away and I saw the Lord kneel down. His form shimmered and then He was inside the gossamer bag with me. “I am still with you, do not worry. Relax, patience.” 

I closed my spiritual eyes and leaned back into Him. Little tingling prickles started at my feet and moved up my legs which began to glow. I was almost asleep when a bright light appeared. My hands easily tore through the cocoon like diving into a clear pool.  

The Lord appeared before me. He was more than clear, as if each strand of hair, every centimeter of His being, sparkled. An iridescent shimmer brought every color alive in both of us. My new body felt powerful, strong, sensitive… I bubbled over with joy and threw my arms around the neck of my Love, wondering what had happened. 

He squeezed me back and responded to the unasked question, “Your devotion to righteousness as you have continued to seek (not Me but ALL of them) was used to strengthen your spirit body. Now your spirit body is stronger and won’t be as easily hurt when the enemy attacks.” 

For many months now I have been doing live videos on our Facebook page, “Morning Prayers.” As I have the first cup of coffee for the day, having only run a brush briefly through my hair, I start my day with my Agape Family. The goal is to help people strengthen their spirits by feeding on the word of God and centering our thoughts on Jesus and His strength. I was thrilled to see the fruits of the prayers so literally revealed in the Secret Place! 

Two of the Psalms we use are twenty-seven and thirty-one. Both of these center around taking refuge in the Lord and being strengthened by Him.

For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter; in the secret place of His tent will He hide me; He will set me high upon a rock. And now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies round about me… (Psalms 27:5-6 AMPC) 

This is exactly what the Lord did. He called me to His tent, the Secret Place, then gave me an advantage over my enemies. My spiritual body is now stronger. It is also very sensitive and I look forward to using it for His glory! 

Visiting the Lord this way is for every believer. In a miraculous vision, He gave me the “Roadmap to Heaven,” a book with instructions that will help you meet with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit in the Secret Place. We are also discussing this in weekly Tea & Coffee meetings online. I hope your journey to a deeper relationship with the Lord will be blessed!

Many people think of boot camp as a place you train for combat. Any veteran will tell you that basic training is about three things:
  • Knowing what weapons are available 
  • Learning how to use those weapons 
  • Receiving orders and following them 
Believer’s Boot Camp series is a collection of books which teach us how to hear more clearly from God with the goal to ready ourselves for a face-to-face meeting with our Lord, Jesus. The series reveals the “weapons and tools” God has given us and how to use them, so we can bring God’s kingdom to Earth. Each book in the series focuses on a single topic to clearly define one tool or weapon from our Heavenly Father. 

The series uses the Word of God to reveal all that He has given us through Jesus. The Bible is our instruction manual and the Holy Spirit is our guide to understanding it.

Volume 1: Why Doesn't God Speak to Me?

Eager hearts cry out, hoping for a single word to confirm that He hears us. Yet, many times the only sound is silence. Over the years I have heard several reasons why God speaks to some and not to others. One night, as I tossed and turned, I brought each of these reasons before the Lord, stating why each of them did not line up with who I thought He was. 

Words rose from my soul, pleading for Him to reveal why He has remained silent when a single word from Him would mean so much to so many. For the next few hours, God used things I learned about years ago and things I had just discovered to show why He talks to some and why He doesn’t, and in demonstrative ways. 

In His grace, He also showed me how people could hear more from Him. Basic instructions on how to hear more from God and how to be led by Him are included in this book. Thank you for taking time to consider the answers I received and share with you now.

Keys to Authority for Every Believer

There is untapped power that is easy for every Christian to access in the form of authority. The keys to this authority will unlock weapons we can use to free ourselves from the attacks of the enemy. We must be intimately aware of the bounds and limitations of our weapon if they are to be used effectively. 

Find out about your authority:
  • Why you need it.
  • Where it comes from.
  • What you can do with it.
  • How to get more.
